Good coordinated look. Especially the "Remove Before Flight" keyfob. :P

I have to say I'm more of a fan (and proud owner of a few) products from companies like Heckler & Koch, Colt, and Smith & Wesson, but I do feel a sense of respect regarding the product of Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov's genius.

And just to get you going, over on one of my other favorite forums where I do my posting regarding that kind of hardware, I share with you a shovel to AK photo tsunami.

Well, I like the picture and the idea of a kilt wearing, gun toting man. Seems like that's as far as I ought to go here though. I look forward to more fine pictures.

Great post you unearthed (or perhaps had favourited) there Kingfish. To tools and the folk who know how to use them.

Thanks, I did not want to offend anyone but my first thought, when I saw your photograph (and bare in mind that I am not well versed in Texan history) was that you were waving an outsized image of a condom. Looking at the flag as shown in the picture at the top of the thread and considering the "macho accoutrements", the whole image looked like a pictorial personal ad from Gay Times... Sorry :(

For the benefit of others who are unfamiliar with the flag, below is an image of the whole thing, showing what it really is.

Have fun,

Me too.

My objection to the OP was not to the photo or the gun in it. However the "gun control" comment was completely unnecessary.
Keep on skirting,

Speaking as 'foreigner' aboard that tipsy little Green Isle to the West of the UK who is at risk of 'Poisoning by Irish Whiskey', all I can say is 'What a way to go!...........

*facepalm*

The flag had been flapping in the breeze all day, I'd never thought of the "prophylactic" view until it was mentioned...

Yeah, that happens.

With the more international audience here, they're probably closer to getting a "Molon Labe" reference over the Gonzales or even a Gadsden flag.

And as for Milfmog's "Gay Times" advert comment, it kind of surprised me, and touched my "male skirt wearing isn't a gay thing" nerve.

It only tripped the association for me because of the strikingly "over macho" image, so beloved of gay interest magazine editors for their front covers, and a bloody great condom with the words "come and get..." (me???). To be honest I would probably not even have noticed the kilt initially if the text had not pointed it out.

Have fun,


Ian. (Skirt wearer and not gay)

The flip side on that is, "Nothing ventured, nothing gained." Take it all in stride and don't let it bother you!
